Gingerbread Baker Pocket Card

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Monday edition of the Blog. 

Our Christmas dies are in the online store. And, you can still pick them up on a 25% sale. We have Christmas Part 1 (22 new designs), Christmas Part 2 (21 new designs) and Christmas Part 3 (11 new designs).

Today, I have for your viewing pleasure a card featuring the new Gingerbread Baker die from the Christmas Part 1 release. 

I created this card using the colors from the Splitcoaststampers color challenge #818. Our own Jeanne was the hostess and she chose some colors that were just about perfect for this gingerbread die. And, the red works well for a Christmas card.  

I decided to create a pocket card. It's such a good technique if you want to include a tag in your card. I made one on this post and give all the details on how to create it. And, if you like to watch one being made, you can check out this video on Splitcoaststampers. 

I created the card front first using designer paper in the real red color. On the pocket flap, I added vanilla and red ribbon. The little cookie embellishments are from the Sweet as a Christmas Cookie die- Christmas Part 3. Added the sentiment using the Merry Christmas Love die from the Christmas Part 3 release. 

On the inside tag, I cut the gingerbread baker in the challenge colors. For this challenge you are allowed other neutrals and I used a medium brown for the baker itself. I attached some curly red ribbon and tied it with some silver cording. Scattered a few red glitter enamel dots. 

Here is a photo showing the tag placed inside the pocket. 

 Well, that's it for me for this post. I hope I have given you another idea for a way to use this new die. See you again on Saturday!
